Nebraska Attorney General Doug Peterson announced that holders of gift cards purchased from the former retailer RadioShack can now file claims seeking to recover the unused balance on their cards.
Consumers who have unused RadioShack gift cards with a balance can go to the website www.oldradioshackgiftcards.com to read about the claims process and obtain a claim form which they can submit electronically or by mail. The claims process is part of a settlement agreement previously approved in the U.S. Bankruptcy court in Wilmington, Delaware. All claims will be reviewed according to the court approved plan and settlement which established the RSH Liquidating Trust and authorized it to review and approve claims in accordance with the court’s orders.
Under the Court’s order, one hundred percent of the balance on the cards will be paid to consumers holding gift cards that were purchased from RadioShack, the RadioShack website or any of its authorized sellers. However, if a card was initially acquired in any other way, those consumers will at most receive a small percentage of the balance of the card and may not receive any payment.
The deadline for filing claims is December 2, 2016 and consumers in all fifty states are eligible to file proofs of claim.
Attorney General Peterson also cautions consumers that no one associated with this settlement will contact them to ask for personal or financial information or to request any payment. Consumers asked for such information or payment should say no to those requests.
